Dear ac27 uncle

Veyron is the best car

It is the fastest car in the world

there were a lot of things that went wrong for the Veyron ..

its the 2005 Hennessay Viper Venom 1000 for me ..
1000bhp
0-60 2.25 secs
top whack - 255mph ..under a mil ? (225 000USD)

Viper venom just isnt exotic enough for me.....I would have it if I had an exotic aldready in my garage.

Dont get me wrong. I love the Viper, and it is very stylish (and fiendishly fast), but not that exotic in the company of the Zonda F, Veyron, Koenigsegg etc, even though it is as fast as the Veyron and simply makes a meal out of the others.

The CCR should also be at least acknowleged, it did hold the fastest production car title, for however short a while. And it remains a wonderful car.

After all the ridicule the Veyron faced all these years after being announced by journalists and car fanatics all around, the applause for the car has been tremendous and this alone in my book would call for it being named the SuperCar of the year.

P.S. Don't you guys find it amusing that the person who most of us ridicule for not being too informative about cars, has now made tons of us huge followers and respectful of the car that everyone loved to hate?

heres my take on this ...

yes agreed a plain viper is not "exotic" ..in stock form we still call it a super car ...but when you replace dodge with hennessay its a completely different story dont you think ?

in the same way, Hennessay has matched if not beaten the Veyron performance...
